"HIV viruses died while exposed to air" - how true this statement is? any idea?

Although the virus will die when exposede to air you have to consider the needle produces a vacuum seal of sorts therefore prolonging it's life.Another consideration is Hepatitis C which you can give yourself from needles.

The HIV virus die in the air,it can only live on the fluid it transport it. When the fluid dry,the virus die.

In the needles is the samething, but like the people u drugs its self, dont wait time, the virus is still alive,and they can be infected

hope this can help u

Generally the virus does not survive at the room temperature due to its fragile nature. Scientific studies have found that HIV can sometimes survive in dried blood at room temperature for up to six days.

HIV virus is very fragile outside a host and need fluids to live. Upon drying, it dies very quickly. Therefore, normal interactions such as handshaking, eating together and even kissing cannot transmit HIV. (Kissing is actually possible as there is exchange of saliva, but the amount of HIV in saliva is very low and about one bucket of saliva is needed for HIV transmission)

Needles, however, retain a bit of the last user's blood or body fluid. It is the HIV found there that would easily lead to HIV infection. Moreover, injection by needles sends the HIV directly into the blood stream, so a small amount is already enough for an infection. (While in the case of kissing, a large amount of HIV is digested in the alimentary canal)

yes they become dormant when exposed to air but become active again once in contact with body fluid!
